What are some good old PS2/PS1 games.

Postby WinterOtaku » Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:33 am

[Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.]

I would say PS3 but the blu-ray is currently broken, and we don't have the money to replace it yet.

I currently have the following.

PS1
[I already plan to get any or most resident evil, castlevania, silent hill, krash bandicoot, spyro, or tomb raider games, so you don't have to suggest those. ^_^ .]

Final Fantasy 9
Chrono Trigger
Silent Hill

PS2

Dark Cloud 1 and 2
Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2
Final Fantasy X and X-2
Silent Hill 2 and 3
Fatal Frame 2
Haunting Grounds
Grand Thieft Auto: San Andreas
Shadow Of The Colossus
Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution
Soul Calibur 3


Its a sad stack of games, but thats why I am open to suggestions.

Try the prince of persia triology. My favorites for ps2 because they have fighting with a lot of combos, puzzles, climbing around freely (well mostly) and its hard, but not the 'unfair' way if you get what i mean :) (i love games with challenge, that doesnt get annoying too fast). The only thing it lacks (in the first game only, the two others dont) is that all of the battles are alike. The only difference is the amount and type of enemies. I found the final boss rather disappointing, as it was way too easy. The second and third games however have several battles that might require more thought and strategy. I'll give it a 5/5 (the whole triology). The plot/story was pretty good, but i think the dialouge was a bit predictable and there was too few characters.

But stay away from the xbox only game (not The forgotten sands or the triology but still p.o.p) that game is crap straight through you couldnt even die if you jumped from a cliff

oh and Chaos Legion has the good old Playstation charm. Its pretty good for passing time. I'd recommend that one as well.


If your more into children games/adventures i recommend the Jak and Daxter triology. Favorite game as a child, because it had some challenge without being too hard, and there were so many areas to explore

The best games I played on PS1 and moved to PS2 with them were the Resident Evil series preferably Resident Evil 1 and Resident Evil 2. Sadly the movies that followed were total bunk when the games were great screenplays already just use all live action. Milla Jovovich was a lousy choice for a character than in my experience never existed in the games. Leelu Dallas MultiPass ... her ONLY somewhat decent role. :lol:

:edit: Oh and if you have a working PS3 and the surround stereo hooked up, play Resident Evil 2 alone in the dark it kicks major butt! 8)

I go into movies based off games like they have nothing to do with each other, that in mind I thought RE1 and RE: Apocalypse were awesome movies, the others in the series blew, especially the newest one.

The first 2 games definitely are some of the best for PS1. I'd also recommend Fighting Force, Twisted Metal 2, GTA2, Vice City, Gran Turismo 2, TIMESPLITTERS 2(one of the best games ever, especially multiplayer), Fatal Frame... I'm out of ideas right now but there's a million great games for PS1 and 2. I'll add some more when I come up with some.

I liked soul calibur 2 a bit better actually because of it's 20 hour long story mode.
But the BEST JRPG and PS2 game series ever is Persona 3 FES and Persona 4. I recommend Persona 4 the most, it's one of my favorite games ever.

resident evil, silent hill, crash bandicoot, spyro are good games.

Another game i know that's like spyro and bandicoot is Tomba, it has multiple parts and it's a cool game, my mother used to be addicted to it. (In some countries, such as mine it's known as Tombi) another one is Croc, which also has multiple parts.

Since i'm more of the racing games i suggest Ridge Racer type 4 (which i heard is the best, although i got the first one from 1993 still in the box and everything)

CTR and DBZ: Tenkaichi (or however it's spelled, I really don't care) 2 and 3 were pretty good.
Siphon Filter: The Omega Strain is really nice, but they took down online mode (The only way you can really complete the game / get all the weapons and crap without using gameshark. Major lulz. :P) in '09, I think.

Played both Spyro and Crash Bandicoot, loved them both :D you cant miss them!

GTA San Andreas is the best GTA game for ps2 in my opinion. Kingdom Hearts 1 is good, but 2 is too easy even on expert mode so dont waste your money on it.

Kingdom Hearts 2 is the best one! Plus it's a JRPG, your not supposed to play it for the difficulty, but for the story.

No. The story is just a cliche and nothing special, so there's nothing in it worth spending money for in my opinion. KH1 had a better storyline i think, plus it has more challenging battles and much better gameplay (And no "invisible walls" popping out of nowhere like in 2)

but if you like story/plot and isnt much into gameplay i guess this game is for you. I think 2 had a total of 1 challenging battle throughout the game, and that was only a sidequest where you fight Sephiroth from Final Fantasy, and even that one i nailed after 3-4 tries.

Definitely agree on the individual levels part. I played some sort of Spyro game on my friends PS1 aeons ago, and enjoyed it. But then I got my PS2 and Spyro had completely changed.

I'll have to start digging through my PS1 games again.
Scarface: The world is yours for PS2 was pretty good, especially if you're into cars, buying crap, and an ungodly amount of blood... lots of blood... really, there will be plenty. :P
Dynasty Warriors 5 XL, also amazing. I could play that all day. :P
